OMG, amalah just took care of the entire male portion of my Christmas shopping, assuming it's back in stock sometime in the next four months. Mamapop FTW!!!

Hmmm. I wish every radio station would follow those guys' example (from the link Cheryl posted). I'm sure my husband would like a few minutes alone with Weinerdog so he could extract a personal explanation from him about why his highly involved presence in our three children's lives has done nothing to allay their autism spectrum disorder. I would do it myself but my head just exploded and that tends to interfere with Guantanamo-style questioning of jerks.

I think Woody paid him to file so he could get his name back in the news. Oh, okay, that was unnecessary cynicism. I agree with Barbara.

Speaking as the daughter of one addict who's been sober for 25 years, and the sister of two more who haven't been sober for all that long, I can only feel sad for Amy's parents. She chose and continues to choose her loser friends and loser husband. And she chose snd probably continues to choose to do drugs and smoke. It's not like people nowadays are languishing in ignorance of the dangers of cigarettes and crack cocaine.

When I first saw that photo I totally thought it was Heidi and Spencer, pretending to "disguise" themselves so they could "get some privacy." But now I'm totally baffled.

Wow, how scary. Your family's in my prayers. (And... buttons? Too cute.) (Also--you have a sewing kit? I *knew* I was a failure at this mom thing, *knew* it.)

Okay, I have and love the Maya Wrap. Hated the Nojo. But the Baby Trekker is AWESOME and bonus! My husband will actually use it! He refuses to even try a sling because "they look all squishy and I know they were squished in utero but there's a reason they were BORN and plus I feel claustrophobic just looking at him OMG." The Baby Trekker has enough buckles and straps to appeal to his masculinity, and I could also nurse while wearing mine.

Is there an award for writing the perfect blog post? Because if there is, you should definitely get it for this one.

The other day my husband and I saw a guy come out of a convenience store, try to get his car started--it was fitted with an ignition interlock--then go back into the store when he failed. About a minute later, one of the clerks came out and blew into the thing for him and he drove off. We called the police but have no idea what happened after that. I guess they're better than nothing, but seeing that scenario played out in front of me totally freaked me out.

I bet they're just tired of people saying "OMG! Is huge! Ready to pop and two months left!" or, alternately, "OMG! Is too tiny for number of weeks along! Is anorexic star starving fetus?" and decided, screw it, I'm going with the tent and they can all guess at the size.

Does this poor child not have a guardian? A responsible adult who'll keep a clear head and tell even godlike Annie L. that "no, you may not photograph my underage daughter/charge/client in a way that blatantly sexualizes her in a completely inappropriate way?" I mean, she still *is* under the age of being in charge of her career, right? Beautiful shots... but with a disturbing aura of kiddy p*rn. I feel terrible for Miley. She's freaking fifteen years old. I would never have been able to think objectively about how a Vanity Fair spread would be received at 15, regardless of whether or not I grew up in the spotlight. I probably wouldn't be able to think about it objectively now. She needs adults in her life who protect her, not allow her to make bad judgement calls like this.

My mom is 5' 11"--isn't that how tall Nicole Kidman is? Anyway, she looked like that during her pregnancy with me, according to the photographic evidence. She also went home from the hospital in her pre-pregnancy jeans. Sometimes, like when I gained enough for three women during my last pregnancy, I have to wonder why God didn't give me those genes.

I honestly wonder if they've just decided to never work again. (Why not, when you're a billionaire?) Their public personas are so unlikeable and they don't seem at all concerned about that fact.

Holy cow, Marlon Brando. I was first introduced to him in his white whale years, so the first time I saw A Streetcar Named Desire I almost passed out. Am woozy. Someone break out the smelling salts.

I don't get it. If you put my 16-year-old pictures next to a photo of me now, you'd definitely think I had work done... Nobody looks like they did at 16 when they're in their 30's, do they?

I'm voting for "find out." I didn't find out for my oldest, did for the other two, and not knowing made me absolutely nuts. It's like you have to pick the most trivial thing ever to obsess about the last month or something.

I'm pretty sure this is what the midwife meant when she mentioned "waterbirth."
